The power of "aw"
Leave it to Japan. They did a study on the impact of cute images on productivity.
They rounded up 48 college students and tested motor skills, concentration, and level of attention before and after viewing baby and adult animals.
In all three, those viewing the cute baby animals improved their performance the most.
But the adult animals also made the subjects happier and more focused.
Apparently carefulness is affected by cuteness.
So--should you watch Mommy cats teaching their kittens to climb stairs or a cupful of tine puppies every day all day at your desk?
Probably not. But the occasional peek could boost the bottom line.
Do you watch the Anny Planny show TOO CUTE? It's about puppies.
Ah--better than a nap.
